Dusty Poetry #89

Hi, welcome to the DustyWrites subsection of DustyReviews.com. If you like what you read and you would like to read more, the rest of my creative offerings are HERE.


Welcome to The Jungle

Skittles are now banned
In many faraway lands.
They’re sweet yet toxic.

Mountain Dew is too,
Both Japan and the EU –
Bromine’s in the brew.

Frosted Flakes – not grrrreat –
A carcinogenic treat
In a bowl to eat.

What about sport drinks?
Nobody drinks Gatorade
At all in Norway.

Some other foods, too,
Are safe for me, but not you,
And I wonder why.


By way of confession, and I guess by way of revealing my status as an American, I wrote this while eating Skittles.
